This Blog is aimed at Microsoft Partners and Design Agencies. it is designed to be a reference point for myself and a way for me to communicate useful news and resources to companies building creative projects on a Microsoft platform. The views displayed here are my own and in no way represent those of my employer.
I was born and raised in the UK, educated in Surrey and have studied Aeronautical Engineering, Electronics and Computing. I was lucky enough to get an apprenticeship at a small IT support company that grew and evolved to provide numerous services including Hardware support, on-site support , maintenance contracts and mid-range brokering. <o:p></o:p>
In 2005 I left my comfort zone and moved from the start-up world to the land of the large corporate. i began working with Microsoft in their Partner Account Team then moved to work for Microsoft EMEA in the Emerging Business Team; helping young companies with disruptive technology and aggressive growth plans. I spent some time working with digital agencies and I now sit back in the UK Subsidiary in the newly formed Digital Marketing Platform Group; helping to encourage the use of a Microsoft Platform and tools to deliver a digital strategy and to adapt to changes in digital trends.<o:p></o:p>
